Description

LA Weekly profiles a U.S. police officer, Skip Ensley, who informed the FBI about the movements of his brother-in-law Luis Valenzuela, a major Mexican drug trafficker. When an attempt for Valenzuela's arrest failed, Ensley's role as informant became evident. He was forced to go into hiding and filed a civil suit against the FBI. The story sheds light on flaws in America's war on drugs.
